If it doesn't have the wow factor, it's not worth your time. And 445 Lafayette Street has more than just your basic wow factor, according to Douglas Elliman's listing. It has, "serious WOW factor!" With seven exclamation marks in the listing, the excitement surrounding this $12.75 million property cannot be understated.
Let's start with the views. They are "the most exhilarating 360 degree views in town!!!" You may feel a bit exposed in this duplex penthouse with 232 linear feet of continuous floor-to-ceiling glass walls (wait until you see the bathroom!)
Here are a few more ways to describe how awesome this place is, courtesy of the listing: a "spectacular home," an "unrivaled trophy," a "one-of-a-kind home," "picture perfect," and a "sprawling super-sized open living space." Convinced yet?
This space may seem big, but that doesn't mean you'll have to move around a lot: "Every convenience is a finger touch away with fully automated Crestron system for zoned audio, A/C and humidifications, shades, drapes, the works!"
And, finally, if you get bored of the chic library with a gas fireplace, the sprawling living space, the generously sized bedroom suits, and the expansive corner master with a gigantic marble spa bath, walk up the sinuous spiral stair to upper mezzanine with a full bath, a wet bar (party!) and roof-top terrace complete with a Japanese deep-soaking Jacuzzi. — Sam Levin
